GrowIt! Announces Scholarship Winners
The GrowIt! Garden Socially app recognizes six recipients of its 2014 Fall Scholarship Program. More than 150 students applied from 30 of the nation’s top horticulture programs. Through the GrowIt! app, students shared their plant photography for a chance to win a $100 or $500 scholarship. The GrowIt! team selected winning applications from their plant profile, based on overall picture quality, the range of varieties uploaded and their accuracy of plant identification.
The six recipients are:
- Maxwell Mercer, University of Florida
- Lindsey Miller, University of Minnesota
- Emma Neigel, Mississippi State University
- Lauren Normandin, Pennsylvania State University
- David Proven, Pennsylvania State University
- Sarah Swofford, Texas A&M University
Launched this summer, GrowIt! is the only social app that helps gardeners find plants to fit their lifestyle, and connect them with other local gardeners. The app uses geolocation and user ratings to help gardeners discover flowers, vegetables and herbs that work in their areas for the best chance of success.
